Timely Quotes

21 Jul

My mother-in-law just gave me these quotes this morning that she had written down on a card, and they came at just the right time.  Thought you might enjoy them too.

“There is nothing, indeed, which God will not do for a man who dares to step out upon what seems to be the mist; though as he puts down his foot he finds a rock beneath him.” — F.B. Meyer

“There is no limit to what God can do with a man, providing he will not touch the glory.” — unknown

This one especially hit home:

“He it is (Christ) who takes our imperfect petitions from our hands, cleanses them from their defects, corrects their faults, and then claims their answer from His Father on His own account and through His all-atoning merits and righteousness.” — A.B. Simpson

To sum it all up, as my m-i-l did:

“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.  Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:14-16).
